13 Disturbing Works of Art by Female Artists After we posted 13 Disturbing Pieces of Art from History , several readers pointed out that none of the works were created by female artists. So, here are 13 more disturbing pieces of art, and they’re all created by women. 1. Artemesia Gentileschi - Judith and her Maidservant The most remarked-upon absence from the previous list was Artemesia Gentileschi’s version of Judith Slaying Holofernes (as opposed to the Caravaggio, Judith Beheading Holofernes , that we featured). Feel free to click on each and decide which you prefer! Face to Face with Most Dangerous Animals Forget about BeetleCam and other devices. A British photographer risked his life as he captured these wildlife shots. Here you can see some exotic animals. 1.

Dream Worlds Revealed On Canvas Along with some magnificent dreams, Jacek Yerka finds inspiration for his masterful paintings from his childhood memories: the places, remembered feelings and smells of 1950′s Poland. He studied fine art and graphic design before becoming a full time artist in 1980… and we’re glad he did. His paintings will take you through incredible worlds of imagination, bending reality in captivating and clever ways fit to inspire a novel or film.

Beyond Drawing: Creative Colored Pencil Art & Sculpture & Dornob - StumbleUpon From a very first look at these wonderfully detailed colored pencil sculptures by Jennifer Maestre, it should come as no surprise that her artwork was initially inspired by spiny sea urchins – beautiful be dangerous to the touch. For each sculpture, Jennifer hacks apart hundreds of colored pencils, cores them perpendicular to their length and turns them into beads, essentially, which she then meticulously stitches back together and slowly shapes into solid sculptures. Though her beginnings were with creatures of the water, Jennifer quickly expanded her subject matter to cover other organic objects – from plants and flowers to house pets and more abstract animals.

Tim Burtonesque Stories on Post-it Notes (13 pics) After you've seen the imaginative work of John Kenn, I bet you'll never see post-it notes the same way again. As his full-time job, Kenn writes and directs television shows for children. When he finds the time, he draws these dark and surreal stories of monsters, trolls and children in precarious situations. (Can't you just imagine him drawing these in a dark study, hunched over in a chair?) Kenn wonderfully calls his art "a little window into a different world." Notice all the small lines and intricate details!
